Year 6 Transition - Starting Year 7 in September 2021

Welcome to all of the students joining us at KES this September. 

The following transition events will take place and will help both our new students and their parents prepare for moving to KES. Further information about the events will be sent directly to parents during the coming weeks.

  • Summer School – Commencing from Thursday 22 July. All our new Year 7 students are welcome to attend.
  • Induction Days - our new Year 7 students will be the only year group in school on Thursday 2 and Friday 3 September.  
  • Event for Parents – Parents will be able to join their children for an event during the afternoon of Thursday 2 September. This will allow parents to visit the school and be part of the induction process.

Some of our current Year 7 students wanted to let you know what life in Year 7 at KES is like.

Welcome Messages from our Student Leadership Team

First Day at KES

The first day at school for Year 7 will be Thursday 2 September 2021.

Year 7 will be the only year group in school on Thursday 2 and Friday 3 September. This will allow time for the students to get used to the school before all the other students return on Monday 6 September.

Students will have the opportunity to meet key members of staff, familiarise themselves with the school building and have time to meet the rest of the year group.

Key Staff

Mrs Evison, Miss Cole and Mrs Ponton will be key points of contact for Year 7, whilst each tutor group will have their own tutor. For help with Special Educational Needs, Mr Bowman and Mrs Jacob are the main points of contact.
